New Personal Trainer Scheduling Software Features
FitSW has just released new personal trainer scheduling software at https://www.fitsw.com/scheduler. This scheduler / calendar adds several new features over the existing scheduler. Improvements include:
- Clients can now request appointment times on a Trainer’s calendar and the trainer can accept or decline.
- Trainers can block off Personal / Unavailable times to prevent clients from requesting times that don’t work
- Clients can see a Trainers schedule but they will only see their appointments with a trainer. All other times (Personal or other appointments) just show as Unavailable.
- Clients can see open times and request an appointment at the click of a button. Trainers are notified via on their calendar and via email of the request.
- Trainers can Accept or Decline an appointment request. Clients will be notified on their own schedule and via email.
- Day, Week and Month views are all available.
- New repeating appointment options are now available.
